with the rules and partly why there is a lawsuit against the city of san francisco -- actually a year ago at this meeting you adopted the new rules and under the agreement and best practice in place for 60 years had kind of been thrown to the side. some window dressing was done at best to have input. one ask i have and the park commission i know you manage hundreds of parks and it's to know all the ins and outs of all of the properties but i request to appoint one commissioner as the expert or point person regarding that trust. specifically chapter 435 of the california statute outlines those and in place and i think it's important they're adhered to. i think if someone review that and look at some of the legal issues there is wiggle room to settle that without waiting for california superior court to get it calendared and before a judge and answer remedial questions and how much liberty are they allowed to exert under this and i put work with the board and planning the renovation. i feel there is abusing the volunteers and doing a bait and switch in regards to how this is played out
